When autumn falls we all crave the spicy flavours. Our perception of the season goes hand in hand with the aromas, that we smell and taste year after year. Those warm, happy memories are often in a cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte.
I love this version that you can easily create in the cozy of your own kitchen.
